Do you have to do your own cooking in order to feed your puppy naturally? Does it need to be just human food? Not necessarily. There are many good brands of commercial natural puppy food.
From my research into natural dog food, it seems that one of the most highly recommended brands of commercial food is Wellness. Other good brands include Orijen dog food , solid gold dog food , california natural dog food , Canadie and Natural Balance. All four of these brands are available at the big pet supply stores such as PetSmart and Petco.
If you prefer to cook your own natural puppy food, that is as well as a lovely option – as long as the ingredients you use are high quality & your puppy is getting all the protein, iron & other nutrients to meet its special nutritional needs. An simple recipe is cooked scrambled eggs or cooked chicken breast mixed in a blender with brown rice & cooked vegetables such as cauliflower, carrots, & green beans.
Recipe for homemade natural puppy food: 13 cup of short grain brown rice
1 cup of cooked rolled oats
1/2 cup of skinless boneless chicken thighs (cooked)
a few pieces of cooked vegetable such as sweet potato, carrots or peas
1 teaspoon oat bran
1 teaspoon Psyllium Husks powder (available at health food store)
1/4 teaspoon of Buffered Vitamin C
1 capsule of Vitamin E, 200 IU
1 capsule of Omega-3 Fish Oil
2 capsules Calcium Magnesium (1000 mg) with Vitamin D
Add a tiny warm water & stir everything. This recipe makes to feed 45 pound canines two times a day. & yes, you can freeze the cooked foods.
But do you require to do your own cooking in order to feed your puppy naturally? Does it require to be human food? Not necessarily. In addition to the brands of natural puppy food I mentioned above, there’s more nice brands of commercial natural puppy food that you can feed. Or you can mix the human food half & half with a nice quality wet puppy food to make sure that your puppy is getting all the vitamins, minerals & other nutrients needed.
